i still love the deftones

That really has nothing at all to do with this post but they put out a song called "Back to School" and it was one of my favorites back when the White Pony album dropped in 2000. That's the winter that I learned how to snowboard (at Killington, VT bitches!) and the year that I started to date my last long term BF (Anthony D.) before I met J. I remember riding (falling) down the long ass green trail on that mountain and hearing that song blasting from the trailside speakers. Wow I thought I was so hardcore with my eyebrow piercing and my newly acquired tramp stamp :-/

/end digression....

So back to school comes to mind because well, that's where I'm going. Let the record show that I do not have a degree of any kind. This is a point of much pain and frustration for me. I don't have enough room on this blog to delve into the how and why but think of it like this: I am a HUGE nerd. I was the valedictorian of my highschool with a partial scholarship and I still didn't go to college. I'll let you dwell on that for a minute and you can speculate about what evil forces must have been at play to keep me from higher learning. I'll save the unabridged version for my as yet unwritten memoir.

Anyways I'm going to school starting this spring.... community college for my AA just to start since I can do that all online. I'll see where it takes me after I get that bit under my belt.

Wish me luck folks. I've taken plenty of classes in my tenure in the Software Development field but it's been awhile since I've been properly graded for my work. Crazy!

Here's the video so you can feel what I felt back in 2000:

Congratulations and welcome back to the student ranks! Be careful not to take too many classes, especially with little Fenix around. I've had a pretty good experience with online classes so far but some of them can be more time consuming than traditional classes. Anyway, good luck!

oooh! great advice pamguin! i can see how i could totally get over zealous and register for more classes than i should since i have no frame of reference for how much of my time it will take to do all the required reading and coursework.

chad, the sound of celine dion's voice makes my ears bleed.

lauren, thanks i'm on my way! your enthusiasm is my inertia.

what kind of AA are you thinking of getting?

Reese McG said...

It will be an AAS - Associate in Arts and Sciences.
My first class is going to be History of Jazz. 5 credits to study a topic that I love!
